September Wrap-Up

So I haven't written a Wrap-Up post since April, which is astounding, and a bit sad, because I tend to come back to these posts often. September was a big month of change for us, in that I'm still job hunting (with a few good leads!), and Jeromy got a new job, which he starts October 1!

September in One Word: Anxious

My Favorite Memories in  September 2014:
  • So much time off with Jeromy
  • Finding out Kay will be having baby #4!
  • The first UL home game of the season
  • Football season starting and getting knee-deep in Fantasy Football
  • Our first double date in a long time
  • Finally getting some leads on potential jobs
  • Jeromy's last day at EY and his 26th birthday
  • A long lunch with a long-lost cousin
  • Getting Lauren's Save the Date addressed to "The future Mr. and Mrs. Bourque"
Books I Read this Month:
  • We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
  • The Post-Birthday World by Lionel Shriver
  • Landline by Rainbow Rowell (Review)
  • The Steady Running of the Hour by Justin Go
  • Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
Favorite Posts from the Month:
New Obsessions:
  • Fantasy. Football. Not a new obsession, but a renewed obsession.
  • The library. I currently have 9 books checked out. (Pro Tip: All. The Books. For. Free!)
  • Fashion blogs, like this one and this (local!) one.
3 Things I'm Sad to See Go with September:
  • Lazy days with Jeromy since he goes back to work October 1st
  • Summer and pool days
  • The easiest part of the fall semester
    3 Things I'm Looking Forward to in October:
    • Gone Girl hitting theaters!
    • Hopefully, getting off the couch and going to work everyday
    • The fall weather, cardigans, and jeans!
    Favorite Quote from a Book I Read this Month:

    “In one aspect, yes, I believe in ghosts, but we create them. We haunt ourselves.” 
    - Laurie Halse Anderson, Wintergirls
